Mission

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.  And behold,
I am with you always, to the end of the age.  Matthew 28:19-20

In our gathering, you can't see all the places we go, but it is all for the sake of the going.  Each member is a missionary who has heard the command of Jesus to go and believes His promise that He will be with us always.

We go to homes; across the street; to friends, co-workers, and family members; and we go to all the world. Currently, 10 percent of our offerings go to a baptizing and teaching mission somewhere in the world where the majority of the population has not heard of Jesus, or does not believe in Him.


New Life Members Return from Russian Mission Trip

Luke Irons, Eric Johnson, (front) and Barb and Steve Goodspeed have returned from their short-term mission trip to Kondopoga, Russia.  The trip was a great success, where they served as teachers in the Friendship English Language (Bible) Camp, which is sponsored by East European Mission Network (EEMN).  

The mission program involved two week-long teaching sessions for middle and high school students.  The program is unique because it teaches English using curriculum based on the Bible.  In addition to teaching, the mission team visited and worshipped at the Lutheran church in Kondopoga and Petrozavodsk, and met leaders of the Ingrian Lutheran Church of Russia.  The team stayed with Russian families, which provided ample opportunity for faith-sharing.

New Life has sent members to Kondopoga since 2011.  The Goodspeeds have participated numerous times; this is the first trip for both Luke and Eric.
